A Hitchin school is holding a reunion in July to raise money for the repair of its iconic clock tower.

Wilshere Dacre Junior Academy on Fishponds Road is inviting as many former pupils as possible to come along to the big get-together.

Head Sarah Smith said: “Our school is 86 years old and we’re opening our doors to any former pupils, staff or anyone who is interested in the history of the school.

“There will be the chance to meet old friends and take a tour of the school led by the current pupils, as well as a chance to look at memorabilia and old photographs of the school, with the chance to buy copies of photographs.

“There will also be entertainment from the school choir and refreshments will be available, too.”
